Starting this fall semester, the university, in an attempt to introduce students to non-British and non-European histories, will include a vast variety of topics including the Indian Independence struggle and the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, US, reports IndiaTimes.

The inclusive move from the university to introduce the histories, movements and political systems of not just the global “West” comes at what many are viewing as a crucial time in global politics.
